Mikko Kautto


Senior Game Artist at Lightheart Entertainment.


Mikko is one of the founders of Lightheart and a veteran of Finnish game development, starting his career in the late nineties - a time of cathode ray tube monitors, questionable hairstyles and great games. Having been in charge of all conceivable facets of art in everything from triple-A console to indie titles, he’s found his home in leading the charge in game visuals in small, high impact mobile teams. Previous highlights: The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, Blade Runner: Nexus, AG Drive, Flatout: Ultimate Carnage
